    OK, I'm trying to decide between 2 options and wanted some peoples opinions.

    Option A


    ZoneAlarm Security Suite Pro version:5.5.062.004 & PeerGuardian v1.99

    PeerGuardian v1.99 is a little utility which blocks IP addresses belonging to Government agencies, spyware users, anti P2P groups and so on. Zone alarm is a reasonably decent firewall which I like the feel of however I dont seem to be able to import the blocking list from PeerGuardian v1.99 into Zone alarm, so I would have to have the two runing together.

    Option B

    Outpost Firewall Pro which I can import the blocking list from PeerGuardian using, however I don't like the feel of the program so much. But I wouldn't have to have 2 firewalls running at once which could cause problems for each other.

    Note: The PeerGuardian has actually proved to be a usefulll tool and picked up something not long after entering a p2p service.

    Actually just noticed something. If I visit the FBI's website, it gives me a notice as well as if they try and connect to me, unless they are scanning me. I seem to be able to have the 2 programs running together ok but still would prefer a little advice first.

    im going to get an IRC program and im also going to get an on-the-fly HD encryption program too and a few other things. but, i was looking at IP blocking programs and there's one which use less CPU and memory then a FW can because it works at the driver level, it looks like its the driver which does all the work of blocking and allowing packets. the link is below. if you are going to be blocking lots of addresses, it looks like the best option.
